Our very own contributing writer Tim Hauserman has a new book out. Geared towards children, but designed to be enjoyable for adults as well, ‘Gertrude’s Tahoe Adventures in Time’  is an introduction to the natural history of Lake Tahoe and how it came to be the incredible place we enjoy today.

The book tells the story of Gertrude, a Tahoe girl who meets a magical maiden who takes her on a fast motion adventure through the history of Lake Tahoe. They watch glaciers march, volcanoes erupt and exotic animals graze, all while the two become forever friends.

Illustrated by Jess Bechtelheimer, the book’s artwork is charming, vividly colorful and whimsical…everything you want in a children’s book. It’s obvious that the book is a heartfelt labor of love by both Tim and Jess and was designed to share with everyone this beautiful area we are all so grateful and lucky to call ‘home’.
